Nintendo’s partnership with construction toy company K’nex has yielded buildable play sets based on various Super Mario Bros. games.
Super Mario 3D World
There's nothing quite like a new Mario adventure to get you excited to turn on your Nintendo console. From the Wii's Super Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros. franchises, to the 3DS' Super Mario 3D Land, we've had a wealth of platforming fun to enjoy these past few years. Though the Wii U received its first Mario title last year (as well as an excellent expansion this summer), it's this year's Super Mario 3D World that's gotten our attention. For the first time, multiplayer has been added to the 3D Mario formula, and the result is a wonderful success.
Having some trouble with Super Mario 3D World? Have no fear because we've got some hot tips from warp zones to easy extra lives to help you save the day and rescue princesses. Even Mario and Luigi can't do everything on their own
